Also on the new version custom white balance is shocking however filters exist


I have covered a few in this article and video




First 4K Underwater attempt Sony RX100 Mark IV

13 March 2016 - 01:22 AM

My trip to Puerto Galera was mostly focused on stills however I did do three dives to try the RX100.
Conditions were poor with low visibility and surge however looks like the little camera can do the job
The clip looks much better at home in H265 however youtube only accepts H264 and the 45mbps clip gets trimmed down to 18 mbps which is less than half
Anyway this is it

Interesting behaviour from a coconut octopus around 2:40

I was at Fishermens Cove that I warmly recommend


Conditions shocking vis 3 meters and rain for most of the times, regardless some interesting encounters

Coconut 'mimic' octopus

05 March 2016 - 07:23 PM

I have come across a coconut octopus that lacking any shells started walking on two 'legs' after creating a shape that looked like a shell. As if it was mimicking having the coconut. I had not seen this behaviour before I wonder if anyone has? I will post the video clip once I get decent connection
This was in Puerto Galera Giant Clam dive site

UHD 'Premium' Specifications

07 February 2016 - 12:26 PM

Just when we thought it was over there is now a new specification for premium UHD content launched buy some of the manufacturers and media companies


The most interesting features are richer colours and HDR contract on top of the UHD resolution




I have some doubt all this stuff will ever pick up to be frank as on my Tv set none of the 4K clips I am playing looks particularly amazing compared to a good bluray rip
